Watercolour added – Who Are You?

Hi everyone

This is ‘Who Are You?’ a watercolour on Arches NOT paper. 140lb. 1/4 imperial.

I took this picture at Georges Cove, Padstow on a recent visit. I was after a photo with reflections and this little dog willingly obliged with the perfect pose. I have made a video of the painting process for this and I’ve posted it on my YouTube channel at: https://youtu.be/1IGWYb4Ymso

Watercolour added… LNER Class A4 4464 Bittern

Watercolour on Arches NOT paper. 1/4 imperial
I’ve wanted to paint a train for a while now, so when I saw this picture I knew I just had to paint it. 4464 Bittern is a London & North Eastern Railway Class A4 steam locomotive. Built for the LNER in 1937 at Doncaster Works as works number 1866, it was originally numbered 4464. Renumbered 19 on 16 August 1946 under the LNER 1946 renumbering scheme, it was renumbered 60019 by British Railways on 10 October 1948, after nationalisation. A Pacific 4-6-2 locomotive to the same design by Nigel Gresley as the more famous A4 Mallard and one of the 35 strong class, it is one of six to survive into preservation and is one of three currently certified for mainline use.
In preservation, the locomotive has also worn the identities of a number of its scrapped classmates, including the first of the A4 class 2509 Silver Link and most recently as 4492 Dominion of New Zealand.

Al Marconi – The Maestro At Work

Hi everybody

This is ‘The Maestro At Work’ – A watercolour on Arches NOT paper. 140lb. 1/4 imperial. On a recent visit to Tavistock we spent a pleasant 45 mins listening to Al Marconi who is a brilliant classical guitarist. We purchased 3 CD’s from him because he is so good. A fellow Steve Hackett fan, he gave us a quick rendition of ‘Horizons’. Made us very happy. A great man to chat to. Painted from my own photo with kind permission from Al himself.

Watercolour added… Bosham

Hi everybody

This is Bosham – Chichester, Sussex – After Geoff Kersey.

Watercolour on Arches NOT paper. 140lb. 1/2 imperial. Another one of Geoff’s tutorials. I had major problems with the paper on this one. It’s been on my stretcher board for some time and I had problems with the surface, particularly on the sky. I think the paper had picked up grease from my hands due to it being manhandled quite a lot. I may even have re-stretched it. I can’t remember now. I used a new app on my iPad for the drawing. It’s based on the camera lucida and it worked really well.

Happy painting

A Demonstration Painting….

Hi everybody

Towards Summerleaze from Widemouth – Bude
Watercolour on Arches rough paper. 140lb. 1/2 imperial.

I’ve been at Bude heritage day today on the Bude Art Society stall. This is a demonstration painting for the benefit of onlookers, although most people were just browsing. I had a couple of people stop for a while and chat. It’s a shame the weather let us down as it kept numbers down. I was painting indoors though.

Happy painting

Pete
